Saturday Morning Seems Like A Good Time For A Tune On The Anglo Saxon Lyre

Submitted by: buttersrules 3 months ago in Entertainment


Brian Kay performs "Herr Mannelig" (Sir Mannelig) on the OE Lyre. 

"Herr Mannelig" is a Swedish ballad set at the time when Christianity was gaining dominance over paganism in the Nordic countries. The song is about a mountain troll who falls in love with a Christian Knight... although, it is considered that the protagonist being a troll is a dysphemism for a pagan woman.

In any event, enjoy!
